The Tackling Inequality Donor Circle on Tuesday 7 May was quite the learning experience. The discussion made it very clear that there is immense value in bringing legal services into health settings. Thanks to our funders for showing a keen interest in exploring new ways of achieving justice both systematically and at a grassroots level. Also, a big thanks to our speakers Fiona, Tania, Charlie and Tessa for their amazing insights into the design and impact of health justice partnerships.
